Blueweed Blitz

Blueweed Blitz is an annual event where volunteers travel with landowners to remote sections of the Pincher Creek. Now in it's 14th year, averaging over 70 volunteers annually, volunteers pick, bag and remove noxious and invasive weeds from the shoreline of the Pincher Creek.

Volunteers arrive at a central location at 9:30 AM to be assigned to a section of the creek and a landowner volunteer. Afterwards, everyone returns for an Alberta Beef dinner and cool beverages to end off the day of improving the health of the Pincher Creek and it's watershed.

Tools are distributed at the meeting place and you are driven to your area where you spend the day removing these invasive species.
